Ador Copiii Resource Center for Adoptions was inaugurated in March 2015 and is dedicated to adoptable children in foster care and who need special preparation for the transfer from the special protection system into the adoptive family, adopted children to adapt to the new life configuration and in the adoption disclosure process, families wishing to adopt, who adopted and adoption specialists.
In the context of developing relations based on trust, transparency, professionalism and passion for defending children's rights in order to modernize the adoptions system, the meeting was a particularly successful one and we want to continue them in the future.
We thank all our partners, donors and members, who give us the power to transform the lives of children and pass on the message of the Ador Copiii Adoptive Families’ Community, that every abandoned child has the right to a family!
